Intro

Featuring three mountain lakes, Nordic landscapes, watchmaking and culinary specialties, Joux Valley has been an attractive region for all lovers of nature and authenticity for many years.

Description

Discover the largest lake in the Jura massif by taking an entire round trip on foot. Lake Joux and the two smaller lakes Brenet and Ter enhance Joux Valley, which nestles in an area of dense fir forests called Risoud and verdant pastures stretching from Mollendruz to Marchairuz.

Take advantage of various vantage points and wild beaches all along the way to have a break and cool down. The passages in the forests and the paths along the lake or near the reedy marshes turn this hike into a diversified adventure full of surprises.

The region's main economic activity for centuries has been high-range watchmaking and has therefore marked its inhabitants. The former watchmaking farms inhabited by farmers/watchmakers are representative of this heritage all along the hike.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
